Junk Food Blues
British researchers studied depression and diet by following 3,000 middle-aged workers for a 5-year period. The results were not so surprising...
People who ate a 'junk food diet' ~ a diet high in processed foods, sweets (candy, chocolates & desserts), fried foods, refined cereals and high-fat dairy products ~ were more likely to report symptoms of depression. The researchers also found that these people had higher rates of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.
Eating primarily junk, which can be addictive, is asking for trouble (inside and out.)
Real, unprocessed, natural foods give us the energy we need to live and move, and feel good about ourselves.
In addition to this study, many studies have shown that a healthy diet can protect against disease and helps to maintain a healthy body weight. SO, eat a diet rich in fruits and veggies ~ and you will feel better about yourself and life in general.
